The following trac.ini configuration will create 2 new tabs on the main navigation bar, one named Google and the other named Edgewall, with the respective URLs and permissions (e.g. Google requires WIKI_VIEW, while Edgewall requires TRAC_ADMIN). The handlers for these items will be /tractab/Google and /tractab/My%20Blog.
